level about the city government and a little bit more about writing reports and what is expected of them here at the city level. so, they're not amateurs coming in. they are well trained and informed about what their duties are and what they can and cannot do. so, thank you. >> at this time i'd like to show you the product, psa. [laughter] >> california founders understood the importance of citizen oversight of local government. our writing into the state constitution requirement that each county will convene a civil grand jury with the express purpose of investigating local government activity. each year your county court, it's citizens just like you that serve as watchdogs over the government the jury has powers and local government is required to provide information the jury needs to conduct this investigation. the result of investigative reports can improve how local government does its job. reports also form the public about the performance of their government. serving on a civil grand jury is not only an experience you'll never forget, but you'll also learn extraordinary amount abo

government borrows is money that isn't invested to create jobs and uncertainty created by the debt is one reason why many businesses aren't hiring. the president loves to blame the debt on president bush, but president obama created more debt in four years than his predecessor did in eight. the real cause of our debt is that our government is suspending 1 trillion dollars more than it takes in every year that's why we need a balanced budget amendment. the biggest obstacle to balancing the budget are programs where spending is locked in. one of these programs is medicare, it's especially important to me. they provided my father the care he needed to battle cancer and ultimately to die with dignity and it pays for the care my mother receives right now. i would never support any changes to medicare that would hurt seniors like my mother so anyone in favor of leaving medicare exactly the way it is right now is in favor of bankrupting it. republicans have offered a detailed and credible plan to help save medicare without hurting today's retirees. instead of playing politics with medicare when
government and big business we need an accountable and efficient big government that allows small and new businesses to create middle class jobs, we don't have to raise taxes to avoid the devastating cuts to the military. republicans passed a plan that replaces these cuts with responsible spending reforms, and in order to balance our budget, the choice doesn't have to be either higher taxes or dramatic benefit cuts for those in need. instead we should grow our economy so we can create new taxpayers, not new taxes. and so, our government can afford to help those truly cannot help themselves. and the truth is, every problem can't be solved by the government. many are caused by the moral breakdown in our society. and the answer to these challenges lie primarily in our families and our faiths not our politicians. despite our differences, i know that both republicans and democrats love america, i pray we can come together and solve our problems because the choices before us could not be more important. if we can get our economy healthy again, our children will be the most prosperous americans
. that the economic downturn happened because our government didn't tax enough, spend enough or control enough. and therefore, as you heard tonight, his solution to virtually every problem we face is for washington to tax more, borrow more and spend more. this idea that our problems were caused by a government that was too small, it's just not true. in fact a major cause of our recent downturn was a housing crisis created by reckless government policies and the idea that more taxes and more government spending is the best way to help hard-working middle-class taxpayers that's an old idea that's failed every time it's been tried. more government isn't going to help you get ahead, it's going to hold you back. more government isn't going to create more opportunities, it's going to limit them. and more government isn't going to inspire new ideas, new businesses, and new private sector jobs. it's going to create uncertainty. because more government breeds complicated rules and laws that small businesses can't afford to follow. because more government raises taxes on employers who then pass the cost

the house chamber and entire government is there. marco rubio is speaking from a room with a teleprompter and basically alone. we say bobby jindal, very competent guy but he spoke four years ago after the president's first speech to a joint session of congress and was widely perceived to have bombed. >> right. and last year mitch daniels gave a good performance. i think one of the interesting things about the president's speech how lackluster it was. in response to the crowd, he hit his stride when he talked about gun control, but before i was surprised how lackluster, what a lukewarm response he got on particularly on economic issues. >> chris: less than 30 seconds, do you see much that republicans will be able to be sign on to from the president's speech? >> no at lot. there wasn't much in the way of specifics. it's like senator wicker said, where his plan on sequester? i did think he did the right thing immigration by restraining comments and not jumping in the middle of it. >> chris: now from the speaker's conference room, senator marco rubio with the republican response. >> good even

. >> nothing i'm proposed tonight should increase our deficit by a dime. it is not a bigger government we need but a smarter government that sets priorities and invests in broad-based growth. that is what we should be looking for. >> there were rare moments when republicans and democrats azbreed i want to ask one question. do you believe him that his policies will not add to the deficit? do you believe it?. >> no. no. >> why don't you believe it?. >> look at the deficit. it keeps growing spiralling out of control continuing to grow. i don't see evidence it's going the other way. >> he made a commitment it won't go up. >> he's got to come up with it. >> he said $3,000 for people to refinance their homes we'd get a tax break for that. but he didn't tell us where it's going to come from. >> i believe he is believing what he wants to do. and he wants to do the best thing for the country. he's going to follow that through. >> we have to stop this you and i know when i cut my budget that means i go from 100ses today $95 in the government a cut in budget means we grow 8% instead of 12%. and that kind
a change. we know it is not government. we know there is too much government already. we'll incentivize businesses and incentivize investment and take this country forward into more economic prosperity. i don't think that's what we're going to hear but that would certainly be a breath of fresh air for the american business community. neil: he will talk about the need for more revenue, the need more more taxes. enough already. we gave you that. we'll not give an inch more. are they right to take that stance? >> they have to take that stand. i think we're to the point we can't borrow anymore. we can't tax anymore. if we tax anymore, we have the highest corporate tax rate. most people that the are running subchapter-s corporations, small businesses are now paying close to 50% if you're in a state like california, new york, you're paying more than 50% in tax. the top 5% pay over 50% of the income tax revenue in this country. this has to stop. the president has to stop this. and i don't think, i think he understands government. i don't think he understands that a vigorous government requires
